Large unfinished wizard staff


Here is another well proportioned, directional Tamarack staff. It stands 71" tall and the shaft ranges from 1-7/16" to about 2-1/4" in diameter. Tamarack is a deciduous conifer...the needles turn a rich gold color in the fall before they drop. It is a very capable, impressive specie. It is harder and packs more btu than some hardwoods. There are two roots that separate and then grow back into one....always an interesting feature. The bark was stripped with a drawknife on 4/6/22 the day it was harvested. Two days later it weighs 5# 8ozs from being so fresh. This will lose some more moisture weight but it'll be heavier than most softwoods. Do with it as you wish, just let it "season" before you seal it. (ufws206)
